Scholarships can contribute to a more international, inclusive, and diverse study environment
On Saturday, June 4, Koen Becking, Rector Magnificus and Chairman of the Executive Board, as well as Elyas Razawi, former scholarship student of the BSc in Business Administration, officially launched the new Nyenrode Scholarship Fund. With a push of the red button, they gave the starting signal in a large tent on the estate during the lustrum festivities in honor of the 75th anniversary of Nyenrode Business University.
Nyenrode considers its social responsibility to educate students into responsible leaders. Scholarships are necessary in order to offer talented students, regardless of their financial means, the opportunity to study at Nyenrode. "With this fund, we can offer both Dutch and international talented students who do not have sufficient financial resources the opportunity to study at Nyenrode," said Koen Becking. At the launch, Elyas Razawi shared how important a scholarship has been for him in realizing his dreams. He came to the Netherlands as a child refugee from Afghanistan.
Responsible leaders are best shaped in an international, inclusive, and diverse environment, according to Becking. "For this reason, we want to welcome to the university both Dutch and international students who come from different backgrounds with different experiences, knowledge, and insights, and hence, contributing to the diversity within Nyenrode."
